This is also notably spicy with its fresh, cool and airy aromas of mostly red berry fruit though there are top notes of violet and rose petal. There is good volume to the delicious and quite supple flavors that display a taut muscularity on the impressively long and perfectly balanced finish. This is a relatively refined Bonnes Mares that is easily the best wine in the range in 2011 as there is just more underlying material. Note that this is a vintage where even a big cru like Bonnes Mares could be enjoyed relatively young.
